On Thursday (Sept. 14), TikTok and Billboard announced the TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart — a new weekly chart that will track the most popular songs on the platform in the U.S. The chart is available to all TikTok users in the U.S. and on Billboard.com. Sexyy Red claims the first No. 1 spot on the chart with the song “SkeeYee.”
You’ve heard them on TikTok thanks to the hottest trends. They’ve even climbed to the top of Billboard‘s charts. And now, they’ve got a chart of their own.
Today, we’re launching the TikTok Billboard Top 50. It’s the first official Billboard chart for songs on TikTok. The chart is based on a combination of creations, video views and user engagement by the U.S. TikTok community. And the first artist to claim the No. 1 spot is SexyyRed with “SkeeYee.” I mean, who can resist the good skeeyee?
Every Thursday, Billboard will bring you the verified list of the hottest songs on TikTok by monitoring music discovery and engagement on the platform in the United States. To find the TikTok Billboard Top 50 each week, users can simply go to any sound detail page and tap the top right button to access the charts page.
This week Doja lands at No. 2 with “Paint the Town Red,” thanks to some quick feet and devil horns. And Taylor Swift’s Folklore track “August” has everyone running on the beach, landing her at No. 3.
